More information on wine critics and ratings

Intense gold in colour with green tones, this wine has a bright floral nose with the citrus aroma of grapefruit and a hint of spice. In the mouth it is fresh and well structured with a crisp finish.

 Elegant and fruity with tropical notes to the fore.

Not only is it the oldest winery in Argentina, but also has the world’s highest vineyard. Located in the Upper Calchaquí Valleys in Salta in the far north of Argentina, the winery is thought to have been founded by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. History of Bodega Colome In 1854, his daughter Ascensión, who was married to José Benjamín Dávalos, brought the first French pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet… Read more

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2017)
A benchmark Torrontés with an intense, perfumed nose followed by a balanced palate that's full of concentrated ripe fruit and freshness. Zesty notes of grapefruit are apparent, combining with subtle floral hints and crisp citric acidity to create a very fine example, which emphasises how special Calchaquí is for this variety.

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2017)
Full of citrus and peach this is a delicious wine that has stacks of fruit. Very fresh acidity and no sharp edges. Mineral finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Robert Parker (RP) : 88 Points (2017)
The serious 2017 Torrontés is varietal, fresh, intense and a little grapey. It has a soft palate and finishes with some sweet Moscatel pulp fruit flavors. 144,000 bottles.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 92 Points (2015)
Thibaut Delmotte picks his Torrontés late, but gives it a long and very cool fermentation on its lees. The result is crunchy and flavoursome, with good palate weight and floral, lychee and citrus fruit notes, balanced by a creamy mid palate. 2016-17

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2015)
Mar 2016 - Very pale, bright color. Aromas of peach, mirabelle, flowers and wild herbs. Juicy, savory, minty wine with lovely saline lift and intensity to its citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Brisk acidity draws out the tactile, bright finish.-- Stephen Tanzer

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2015)
Offers minerally notes to the green apple and ripe lime flavors, with plenty of floral accents. White pepper details show on the well-structured finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 87 Points (2015)
Powdery white-fruit aromas blend with notes of vanilla, lees and briny saline water. This feels fresh and lightly citrusy. Powdery, yeasty melon and tropical fruit flavors finish with notes of lychee and citrus pith.
